Emergency Amendment

People must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose when awaiting, boarding, traveling on, or disembarking public conveyances including public buses.

The following do not fulfill the requirements of the Order:

  • Face shields or goggles
  • Scarves, ski masks, balaclavas, or bandanas
  • Shirt or sweater collars
  • Knitted masks, or masks made from vinyl, plastic or leather

Operators of public transportation must refuse to board anyone not wearing a mask that completely covers the mouth and nose and require that everyone on board wear a mask for the entire duration of travel.

If a passenger refuses to comply, the operator must disembark the person at the earliest safe opportunity.

If you have recovered from Covid-19 or have had a Covid-19 vaccine, that does not preclude you from complying with the mask Order.
